Guided West Wall Climb


Bretton Woods Rosebrook Lodge

Guided Rock Climbing at Bretton Woods

Join our experienced guides for the awe-inspiring West Wall guided rock climbing adventure at the Bretton Woods Adventure Center. This rock climbing experience is designed for people with a wide range of climbing abilities and previous climbing experience is not required. This three-hour guided rock climb is tailored to each group based on individual abilities and goals. One guide will accompany up to three guests and work with each group to choose the most appropriate route. Guests will be belayed on all technical climbing sections. Fixed ropes may be used as aid if needed.

After a ride up the Skyway Gondola, a short hike will take you to the bottom of the southwest face of Mount Oscar, better known to Bretton Woods skiers as West Mountain. Several routes of varying difficulty, all approximately 400’ in length, ascend a granite cliff to an elevation of 3,000 feet. Situated in the White Mountain National Forest, the cliffs provide open views of the Pemigewasset Wilderness and Zealand Valley. Reservations are required for this activity. Please book your adventure by calling 603-278-3320.
